I am done being bullied for being a man. I cannot believe these people in Washington are so stupid to think they can govern Americans with an iron fist. Twenty-five years ago, the federal government declared war on men. It is time now to see how committed they are to their cause. It is time, boys, to give them a taste of war.A taste of war! Brave words indeed. Now I will admit that my sense of humor is inclined to the black, but even the more delicately minded must find this quintessentially gamma drama to be at least a little amusing. It would appear that Ball failed to understand Gen. George Patton's dictum: the purpose of war is not to die for your country, it is to make the other guy die for his.
Ball demonstrates that even to the fiery end, the gamma is ultimately more concerned with trying to make others feel sorry for him than he is in actually accomplishing anything material. There are men who die like lions and men who die like sheep. But what can one say of the man who chooses to die by his own hand like an inanimate piece of firewood?
